Resume Trends

Does your resume pass the 6-second test?

Job searching has changed. A recent study by The Ladders shows that on average, a hiring manager will spend 6 seconds scanning your resume before deciding to READ MORE or MOVE ON – does your resume pass the 6-second test?

Can you define your professional brand? LinkedIn and online job search sites require more of your resume than the traditional search. You have to strategically stand out. The Resume Nerd can help! No boiler plate lingo or recycled templates. We will work together on original content for your resume. Custom cover letters. We’ll spruce up that LinkedIn profile.

We can also discuss networking in the age of social media. Personal contact is not dead, but some norms have changed, and we can discuss what might work best for you in your particular field. The Resume Nerd is here to help! Contact me today to set up a consultation at theresumenerd@gmail.com.
